The Cookie statement link in the footer redirects to the English version of the Cookie statement, not the translations

Description

On ar or fr, the "cookie statement" links to https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Cookie_statement. It should be https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Cookie_statement/ar or https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Cookie_statement/fr

The links like "Privacy policy" or "Developers" redirects to the translated pages. Maybe there is a Legal reason but it is confusing for users.

Reported here.

The "Privacy policy" link correctly redirects to the translated page, but not the "Developers" link (except for the few users that are registered and configured the desired language on MediaWiki) despite using [[Special:MyLanguage/How_to_contribute]].

Unregistered users that click on this link on a non english language Wikipedia should have the language of the source Wikipedia displayed if it exist.

de.wikpedia.org and es.wikipedia.org have the same "Developers" link.

es.wikipedia.org have a link to the translated https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Cookie_statement/es for the cookie statement.
